Re: Timing IS Everything....This is Brutal

Never said Gibson was brutal....he is a much better umpire than I will ever be.

The situation was brutal; the miss was brutal in front of 30,000 or so people and more on TV.

Ode to the Nutty Buddy

I wore you for the first time tonight
You held the twins snug,
You held the twins tight.

A comfort level beyond compare
I could barely tell
You were even there.

But you were right there...

JUCO Cheap Shot

Keep an eye on the runner at second at about :18 seconds, who is doing nothing but watching the "fight" over by first.

Worst. Cheap. Shot. Ever.
